- In nearly every issue of the Star
there is some mention of the improve

building which are going on in Ocala.
These improvements are of the per permanent

guage language than written words can of the
growth of our little city.
There is hardly a house in the cit
for rent and as the places fill up and
new houses are built and occupied,
property owners are taking advantage
of the slight lull before the winter
season to enlarge their accommoda accommodations

ida Florida House. Right now the present
building is filled and more- room is

every room was taken and guests
were turned away. This attractive
hotel under the management of Mr.
and Mrs. H. J. Goldsmith has an ex excellent

consequently each month and day
their patronage increases. j
Mr. and Mrs. Goldsmith came to
Ocala and purchased from Mr. Eugene
Dobbs what is knownas the Florida
House. At that time it was a plain
wooden building. Plans were immed
iately made to improve and renovate
the place inside and out. The two
buildings comprising the hotel were
stuccoed, which gave the outside; an
attractive appearance, and paint and
paper were used lavishly inside. The
house at that time contained about
thirty rooms, which last season and
this summer have been filled. j
The management has recently been
compelled to add on twelve more
rooms and these will only accommo accommodate

This addition is now well under way.
It is about 85 by 40 feet and will con contain

upstairs and six downstairs with con

which will add much to the comfort
of the guests. The dining room, lobby
and sleeping rooms in the main part
of the building have recently been I en entirely

annex is completed the house will be
as spic and span as paint and paper

The Florida House with its excel excellent

WILDCATS WERE WORSTED
Those fans who were lucky enough
to go to Leesburg yesterday afternoon
report one of the best games of this
season when the Leesburg boys beat
us in a two to one count. The re
porter was not one of those lucky
ones so will have to give a very con condensed
densed condensed story of the game. Lariscy
performed for his team with ever
more than his usual effectiveness ana
held the Wildcats to three hits. Fisher
did almost as well for us as he only
let up five safe blows. The errors
were divided evenly with three for
Ocala and four for Leesburg. The
winning run of the close game was
made on a pretty squeeze pulled off
by Porter and Stephens. Taylor and
Bracken again pulled off a dpuble
from first to third. This is the sec second
ond second time these boys have pulled that
stunt and it is no easy matter to
throw the ball twice across the dja
mond and catch both men. These
two teams play in Ocala this after

ARLO'S ARMY ADVANCES
Not being" able to follow the Wild Wildcats
cats Wildcats to Leesburg yesterday and yet
being of a nature that craves base
ball on Thursday afternoon, the
Star's diamond duster took his trusty
ark and cruised up to Oak yesterday
afternoon, taking Sally Walters, first
mate and Frankie Harris as pursei.
It was reported in Ocala .that Arlo
and Williston were going to cross
bats on the Oak lot but the report
was slightly in error. Fairfield was
the outfit that opposed the Arlo nine.
Fairfield had in her line-up many of
our old friends and we thought the
would give Arlo a real' battle but it
appears that Bull-Young, Lucy Dans-
by, Walton Bishop and the rest of
the boys have not been playing much
baseball together for their team
acked the unity that it takes to play
a good game of ball. When we arriv
ed on the scene of action Roy Lindsay
rushed over and asked the scribe to
keep score for them. Little suspect
ing the duplicity of Roy, we consent
ed to mark down the runs for him but
ty the end of the fifth inning our
paper and pencil gave out and' we de
cided to return to Ocala as we had
already seen more than 35c. worth of
baseball. When we left the score
was 15 to 0 in Arlo's favor. We haven't
heard the final result.
